|||Waddington Bath, Gledhow Valley (Gledhow)
|25th June 1928.
Built in 1671 by Edward Waddington of Gledhow, this bath house still stands in Gledhow Valley Woods. A date stone with Latin inscription has these details. Leeds historian Ralph Thoresby described the spring as a very curious cold spring.
